The Jokerit vs Ak Bars game, which was scheduled to take place on Friday, Sep. 11, is postponed.
On Sep. 10, it was announced that on arrival in Riga, seven representatives of Neftekhimik recorded positive results following obligatory express tests for SARS-CoV-2. Later, four of those cases were confirmed.
On Sep. 9, Neftekhimik played against Jokerit in Helsinki, meaning that the Finnish team is now part of Neftekhimik’s ‘contact group’. Jokerit’s players and staff must now undergo additional tests for coronavirus, meaning that it is impossible to play Friday’s game against Ak Bars.
Further details about the rearranged date for the game between Jokerit and Ak Bars will be announced in due course.
